Solid Indian Rosewood back and sides
Solid Swiss Alpine Spruce Top (MooCut)
Original Schertler Tuners
Custom Dual-Onboard system
The satin mahogany neck has an ebony fingerboard with a flat profile to help players enjoy this instrument even more. The truss rod of the steel-string version allows adjustment in both directions to obtain a perfect shape on the neck in all positions. A glass fiber rod which was developed in-house improves the resistance on the cedar neck of the classical version. The nut is made of bone.
The solid ebony bridge guarantees a perfectly flat surface – an important criterion for the even response of the electrostatic Bluestick under-saddle pickup. Like the nut, the saddle is also carved in bone and is precisely fitted to give a string angle of 12°. This facilitates transmitting the string vibrations to the Bluestick with greatest efficiency and offers better compensation in tuning when string action is raised or lowered.
The guitar is bordered by an elegant rosewood binding, contrasted by a fine binding line in maple.
The headstock is reinforced by a 3 mm thick piece of ebony for better tone and to create the elegant optical effect of an elongated fingerboard. The lightweight slotted headstock adds to the overall balance of the neck and reveals the original Schertler machine-heads. These are of the highest quality, timeless elegance and feature lightweight ebony knobs.
